Response to: RE: XCode please

(I feel a bit like I am jumping in a little late.. unfortunately I was out of town and off the net the whole weekend... but I feel like i need to add my 2 cents)


I understand that the first article was a little basic and that it was not the most novel concept. the thing is the goal for this topic was always two articles: part one with the basics, part two with more meat. i felt it would be confusing to readers to jump right into the intracies of webkit without having a backgroud article for readers to refer to.


that being said, if there is anything that anyone is specifically looking for in part 2, let me know and I will try my best to include it in the article. i need specifics though, not something like "more technical details of webkit".


as derrick said, it's a team effort, i can't deliver what you want in an article unless i know what it that is.

    Hello,

    I originally took a look at this tutorial thinking there was a small chance there might be a little information I could apply towards creating an javascript aware environment.

    I know that this is something that probably wouldn't fit in the next article that well, but I thought this was as good a place as any to get in a request. I'd love to see an article about embedding a javascript environment.

    Thanks Andrew,

    I would just like to see you follow up with what you outlined at the end of the article. For example, updating the URL line.

    I saw the 'Mac OS X State of the Union' video at ADC. Towards the end, it was demonstrated how to set up a browswer using WebKit very quickly. Using XCode, it was easy to set up the outlets from the UI elements to the WebView; but I don't understand how the new controller mechanism was used to do the reverse: update the UI from WebKit.

    It would be great if you could explain not only WebKit, but something about how this new tool works.

      i've posted some code at http://end.com/BionicDOM that does something like this. it is a framework with an Interface Builder palette that lets you use Cocoa Bindings to access values in the WebView. the sample.nib file included implements a live CSS inspector panel entirely with bindings. (try running sample.nib in the Interface Builder simulator)
